Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman is saying no to the Baucus health care bill that passed the Senate Finance Committee. Michael O’Brien writes on TheHill.com, “the Connecticut independent is one of a handful of key Senate centrists who are shaping the fate of health reform this year.”
Lieberman says he could not support the bill the way it is formed right now due to concerns of a taxes hike on insurance companies, which would be passed on to consumers. O’Brien quotes Senator Lieberman on Fox Business’ Imus in the Morning Show, "I'm afraid that in the end the Baucus bill is actually going to raise the price of insurance for most of the people in the country.”
Lieberman said this plan cannot work in the current economy.
